Review: Slated by Teri Terry


Kyla’s memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost for ever.

She’s been Slated.

The government claims she was a terrorist and that they are giving her a second chance - as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla’s mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?

5 Words: Crime, discrimination, second chances, love.

Absolutely amazing.

This book has had some very mixed reviews, but I am so glad I gave it a chance. Because it was amazing.

I loved the idea behind the story, and how as a reader you were always slightly in the dark - you only knew what Kyla knew, and that was often very confused.

Slated is not straightforward. There are a lot of different things going on and my perceptions of the characters changed a lot.

This book left a lot of questions unanswered, but it is the first in a trilogy and rather than being frustrated I'm just itching for the next one. I can't wait to read on. Because just enough was answered to keep you reading on and not just throw the book down.

  1. I'm glad that you liked this one, Cora! I read this one not too long ago and didn't love it as much, although it was for rather petty reasons. Haha!
